Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; proleg testaceous; mesoleg testaceous, except femur brown; metaleg brown, except coxa and trochanter testaceous. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 5:4:4:4:4:4:4:4:4:6. Head dull, granulate; frontal line incomplete, not present in front of anterior ocellus; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 3; OOL = 3; OPL = 2; TL = 3; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli about as long as OPL. Mesoscutum dull, granulate. Notauli complete, posteriorly separated; minimum distance between notauli longer than greatest breadth of lateral ocelli (3:2). Occasionally notauli incomplete, reaching about 0.85–0.90 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, slightly granulate. Metapectal-propodeal disc reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity with two longitudinal keels and median area less rugose than anterior surface.
